Check out these suggestions — who knows? You might learn something new, or at least be entertained for a little while.

Virtual Learning Activities – Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex: The education team at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will share daily Facebook Live video experiences as well as shorter segments that will each pair with an at-home activity, covering topics such as living in space and on Mars, tours of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Astronaut Training Experience, Rocketry 101, and more. Hands on activities will involve everyday items that can be found around the house, such as using straws, paper towel tubes, and rubber bands to build and launch a rocket.
